    Whats wrong with your stock headlights? Best upgrade is a retrofit IMO. The stock headlights are plenty bright though. I'm wondering if your setup might be wrong.

    This is the depo headlights right out of the box, before I did my retrofit on them.

    That's the Apollo shrouds.
    I painted the main reflector black, but left the shrouds chrome.

    Not sure if you're active much anymore, but how did you color match you grille, and how did you do that grille insert. The headlights and grille make this base reg cab look awesome, wondering what it looks like now, if you still have it.
